“Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”

Event Volunteers
Event volunteers support our program events. From digging in the dirt, posting flyers, welcoming attendees, serving up delicious food, and everything in between, we can always use help. Tasks will vary depending on the type of event. As an added bonus, you get to be a part of a great event!

 

Professional/Administrative Support
Sustainable Solano is mainly volunteer-run and is always in need of general administrative support.

  • flyer design and distribution across Solano county cities
  • social media posting (Facebook and Instagram)
